Fragrant Zygopetalum Jumpin Jack orchid in spike now
We love zygopetalums because they are easy to grow and produce
wonderfully fragrant flowers with mahogany spots over olive green in the
petals and sepals, and a wonderful blue / purple lip.
Zygo Jumpin Jack is Zygopetalum Skippy Ku x Zygopetalum Artur Elle. The flowers are rather fragrant, and pleasingly so.
This orchid's generic name, derived from the Greek word "zygon", means "yoked petal." It refers to the yoke-like growth at the base of the lip caused by the fusion of petals and sepals They occur in humid forests in South America at low- to mid-elevation regions, with most species found in Brazil.
The ones we have are a seed cross, so there may be some variation in the flowers but all should be beautiful. They have multiple growths and they stand 18 inches high or more measured from the bottom of the 4-inch pot. In spike now.
Grow this one in bright indirect light, in a temperature range of 55 to 85 degrees. Try not to let it dry out completely, but don't keep it sopping wet. Fertilize twice a month. We include free growing instructions. One of these in bloom at an orchid show would sell for $45 or more, so be patient, and enjoy the blooms when it flowers.
